Jason Ivy’s “Crush”: A Love Story Filled with Heartbreak and Healing

Jason Ivy unleashes “Crush,” a masterpiece that transcends the boundaries of Alt-RnB into the realms of Neo Soul and Psychedelic Electronic Rock. 

Following the success of the previously released single Divided, “Crush” emerges as the second beacon of light from Jason’s debut project, marking his inaugural release with AWAL. With raw vocals and soaring falsettos that echo legends like Prince and Sadé, coupled with live saxophone and instrumentation that nods to Thundercat, Tame Impala, and Kaytranada. 

Crush is an immersive experience. 

The track is further elevated by a striking animated music video crafted by the talented Afro-Japanese artist, Larry Ohaka, and produced by RIAA Platinum producer Buddafly Wolf.

Jason Ivy’s approach to “Crush” is both innovative and introspective. He plays with the duality of the word ‘crush,’ transforming its typical connotation into a narrative of love lost, not by choice but by circumstance. The song’s lyrical journey reflects a deep emotional voyage through the stages of heartbreak, capturing the essence of separation and the longing for what once was. “Miles apart in thought with nothing more than memories I brought,” sings Ivy, encapsulating the distance between lovers, both physical and emotional. The song’s spiraling lyricism and heartfelt delivery resonate with anyone who’s navigated the tumultuous waters of lost love, whether romantic, platonic, or familial.

As Chicago’s own, Jason Ivy is not just a musician but a storyteller, using his platform to explore complex emotions and societal themes. With “Crush,” he invites listeners into his world, offering a piece of his heart and his artistry. For those yearning for music that speaks to the soul, Ivy offers a blend of genres and breaks free from the conventional.
